We Are Marshall
Anyways, I really enjoyed this movie. It had mild language but no sex scenes or anything. It is about a town who's football team and some other students and staff were in a plane crash. They lost the entire football team except one coach and three players. The devastation hit more than just the team or even the school. It hit the entire town. They had a hard time dealing with it. The school almost closed down the football but with a lot of hard work from the college president they were able to build the team again. They didn't win any awards their first season, they only won a few games but the story was about a town overcoming an incredible hardship and accepting this new team. They had to overcome their grief and not let everything football remind them of people lost but to see it as a new beginning and a way to honor those lost. It was an awesome story!
